Quiksilver has a new line of denim inspired by skateboarders such as Reese Forbes, Alex Olson and Danny Garcia. The complete line also includes tees, wovens, jackets accessories, fleece and flannel.
The Quiksilver Jeans retail for $75 and are made with a CoolMax fabric technology allowing them to be more breathable and stretchy. Some key skate specific features include: Reinforced back hems to help avoid blow-outs and provide longer wear; heavy thread and triple stitching for seam strength; reinforced bar tacks in high stress points for less rips; rubber coated buttons and rivets to avoid snags and skin punctures; and special crotch gusset to allow more room for movement.
Quiksilver has been making jeans since 1991. Check out the online campaign at “The Spot.” The video is a new take on the traditional skate video.
